    Bull Elk are Tough!!

    Well I know if you shoot a bull in the back of the head they die pretty quickly. My only archery bull hardly flinched when I shot him the first time. Just stood there for a minute or so looking around. He finally trotted off a ways and I decided to shoot him again but miss judged the distance. Arrow hit him right smack in the back of the head. The crazy thing is the arrow punched through his skull and lodged against his eye. You can see the arrow sticking out the back of his head below his right ear.

    This new forum layout !!!!!!!!!

    Is there a setting for when you scroll down and click on a post and hit the back button after reading the post you don't go all the way to the top of the page? I have to then scroll all the way down to where I was at before.

    2018 Dove

    I am out in SE Mesa and don't know if I have ever seen as many as this year. I have hit a few just driving down Pecos road and a couple on the 202 in the evenings when they get flying.

    Any graphic designers?

    I can second Brett. I have been using him for all my marketing things and logo shirts for the last 10 plus years.

    What is your dream/bucket list hunt?

    High country mule deer hunt. That tops my list. Lots of stuff I would like to get but baby steps.

    Unattended Fire

    Chef from here on the site and I were heading to Young one time from the south side and happened across a fire burning along side the road. So we do the right thing and jump out and run over and put the fire out. Feeling good about ourselves we get back in the truck only to drive down the road about a 1/4 mile and see a sign marking controlled burn area. So much for our good deed.

    Leftover results

    We struck out also. And we mailed the application on Friday. We had all five choices filled out with hunts with pretty good tag amounts left. We must of ended up on the bottom of the pile. Idaho, here I come.

    Any private pilots here?

    Had a couple friends with private licenses when I was in the Air Force. We use to go fly every Sunday because it was a no fly day for the military. We would buy bags of oranges and get permission from the air traffic controller to fly over the bombing range. Then we would open one door of the plane and bomb the planes with oranges as we dive bombed them. Good times.

    Unit 23 New mexico

    One of the biggest muleys I have ever seen was in that unit. Down south of Mule Creek up against the ranch where the road is blocked by a locked gate. We hunted east of there.

    Hydrographics tank

    Looks like the refrigerator got tagged also.
  12. The first time I went to Mexico we were glassing for about an hour and happened to look down and there were several deer with a few decent bucks just chilling within 100 yards. They didn't have a care in the world that we were sitting above them. That is what I love about hunting coues deer in Mexico.

    Plantar fasciitis

    I went through this a couple years ago. I had the foot casts that you sleep with and the little rolling thing for the bottoms of my feet while at my desk. None of that seemed to help. I ended up getting new work boots with custom inserts and I haven't had an issue since. I imagine it is like everything else that every case is different though. I would pretty much shuffle to the bathroom in the morning when I got up because of the pain. But as the day went by they seemed to loosen up. Good luck

    Which directions do you glass?

    I took Duwane Adams glassing class years ago. We glassed the south and east facing slopes first thing in the morning and then turned around as they started feeding towards bedding areas. Coues deer will stay up later than muleys so it lets you glass away from the sun longer. I think it was around 9 when we turned and started glassing the north facing slopes. It was crazy because we started seeing deer feed out of view and turned around to glass the opposite ridges and had different deer pop into view.
